Funny thing is a couple friends and I were just talking about the concept "Tonka" truck tonight. One of the guys was saying that Toby Keith (Country singer) got one as part of his contract for singing in Ford's commercials. At least the Tonka truck was kinda cool, that F-650 is just plain retarded. Can you imagine the gas mileage? Why do people buy a "Truck", that is totaly useless as a truck? It looks more like a friggin tank, and what roads are they taking something that size on with that low a profile tire? Everyone would just look at you and think "What an a$$hole...".
It'll cost $200 a week to drive in gas!! Don't understand these monstrosities (i know I can spell but you get the point) Especially when people who can't handle a vehicle buy this!( not saying you can't handle it) I know it's the american way- Bigger is better and to much is just great! It's what keeps harley and nascar in existence! But hey to each there own!
Vehicles are getting toooooo big. This thing is going to need to carry a smaller vehicle just to allow the owner to get into parking lot for some shopping. Kind of like a larger boat needs a dinghy. And almost as expensive to run. I have some buddies that spend $600 + a weekend on gas just to feed their powerboats.
I bet the diesel in that thing gets better mileage than my old Superduty V-10 gasser. Trust me on this....Seeing 8 on the running MPG indicator on the averhead counsel is just depressing esp. at 2.10 a gallon.
